Charity here with a miniature glass cathedral all set for a Merry Batmass Party. I just love the Ebony/Ebony Starstruck Foiled Paper from Rinea. It holds its shape, is a wonderful color, and has stars embossed across it. It's the perfect paper for making bats!
~ Merry Batmass ~
My tiny glass house looks like a cathedral with a soaring roof and arched windows. I decided to run with that theme and turned it into a battery operated candle holder. I also spelled my title with the church idea in mind. If you look closely, you can see the glow behind the tree!
Step 1:Print digi-stamps and printables on velllum.
Step 2: Paint the printed design on the back.
Painting the vellum from the back of the design mutes the colors and adds to the glow of the candle design. The watercolors left the vellum rather warped. I cut out the tree and wrapped it around a paper towel tube to reform.
Step 3: Stamp and cut Batmass Angels.
My Batmass Angels were super easy to make. I used white pigment ink on Ebony/Ebony Starstruck Foiled Paper. The bats cut out perfectly with stamps and matching bat dies from Gerda Steiner Designs.
Step 4: Add presents and party guests.
I printed out and colored or painted the Christmas Tree several times. I used my extras for these cuties in the back. I fussy cut them and used foam tape to adhere them to the glass.
Step 5: Cut and attach title, bats, and hats.
I used Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper and Gothic alphabet dies for the title. The Christmas Hats are printed on white cardstock with a bit of Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper pieced in the middle.
Step 6: Attach tree to battery candle, add bling.
The tree is curved around two battery operated candles that give it support and shape. I want to be able to replace batteries easily so I choose to use tape.
Step 7: Turn candles on and position tree in the center of the glass house.
The Batmass Angels are so excited to have the kids over for a Christmas Party! There is a lovely tree and presents galore. I hope you have enjoyed this little piece of fantasy.
